The Brain That Wouldn't Die - extended version (1962)

horror, transplants, Feature Films

I'm calling this the "extended version" because whether it's "uncut" or not is anybody's guess. The "neck rip" scene is intact. However, please note the picture quality is a bit washed out in some places but still watchable in my opinion.

Abel Ferrara began filming Driller Killer in 1977 and finished the film in 1978, but it was not released until 1979. Then in 1982 the UK distributors of the film, Vipco, took out some full-page advertisements in a number of movie magazines. The advertisements showed the video's violently explicit cover, complaints began flooding into the Advertising Standards Agency, and by 1984 'Video Nasties' were banned in the UK.

The Vampire Bat takes a different route from most other vampire films of its day and there is as much science in the story as their is supertition. In this film though the science is no bad thing because where there is science there is usually a scientist and scientists often need an assitant. In this film the assistant, Ruth Bertin, is played by the lovely Fay Wray who is also the love interest of the local police chief, Karl Brettschneider and when Karl's hands are not full with his investigtion his arms are filled with Ruth. Busy man!
